Danny Walker, the main character of Travel Team fame, returns to prove yet again that he has game. Ready to enter high school, Danny is hoping for a growth spurt that will help him compete with the big boys. Spending a few weeks at Right Way Basketball Camp summer camp is meant to be the testing ground, but trouble looms as a rival from the travel team championship game ends up on the same team and a coach suggests that Danny might be better off playing soccer instead of basketball. Can the smallest hoopster among campers in his age group survive the competition and a coach who has it in for him?
